We’ve read in numerous interviews about how none of the principal cast were yet to see a copy of the script for M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable and Split sequel, Glass, but it seems to have found its way into the hands of Anya Taylor-Joy, with The Witch star captioning her Instagram post ‘Bedhead and Excitement. She’s back’.
What we know lies within those valuable pages is that Unbreakable hero, David Dunn (Bruce Willis), is in hot pursuit of Split’s multi-personality bad-guy, Kevin Wendell-Crumb (James McAvoy), while the returning Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, aka the titular Mr. Glass, will act as puppet master to their fates.
Also returning to complete her character arc will be Anya Taylor-Joy, as Casey Cooke, who has unresolved issues at an abusive home, and whose loyalties will be tested by the hero/nemesis dynamics going on around her.
The only other confirmed cast members are the always terrific Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story), whose character details, along with almost everything else, remain under wraps, as well as the recently announced Spencer Treat-Clark (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) as Dunn’s son, Jospeh, and Charlayne Woodard as Elijah Price’s mother.
Glass will be the punctuation on a remarkable return to form for M. Night Shyamalan. It wasn’t that long ago that films such as The Last Airbender and After Earth had made his name a cinematic watchword for box-office bomb. However, with the backing of the team behind Get Out and The Conjuring, Blumhouse Productions, he managed to surprise everyone with The Visit, and then with Split, turn a creepy little oddity with a $9m budget, into a $250m+ worldwide smash hit that would spawn a sequel audiences had been waiting over fifteen years for.
You can read what we hope can be found within those pages with our Unbreakable universe feature.
Produced by Blumhouse Productions for Universal Pictures, all will be revealed when Glass is released in January 2019.
